Artists Talk-Dr Paola Balla
Join Dr Paola Balla in The Track Gallery as she shares her thoughts and knowledge of Treaty and First Nations ways of being, knowing and doing. Dr Paola Balla is a Wemba-Wemba and Gunditjmara artist, curator, writer and academic whose projects focus on Aboriginal women's stories and resistance, centring Aboriginal women’s voices and activism, sovereignty and matriarchy. Balla’s visual practice engages with the impacts of racism and traumas in colony Australia on Blak women’s bodies and encapsulates identity and narrative realms in photography and installation through practice led research. This presentation is part of Monash NAIDOC Week 2022 celebrations and a special exhibition of TREATY - 3-14 July, at The Track Gallery, Mount Waverly Community Centre.
